My experience with everyone at the Smithfield Center was absolutely outstanding! I would give them a "10" in every category if the scale went that high. This is a beautiful venue for both a wedding ceremony and reception. The staff is professional, very accommodating, and just wonderful to work with. The cost was, in my opinion, very reasonable. I have and will continue to recommend the Smithfield Center for any special function.

Smithfield Center made our wedding day perfect! They provided a space for my bridesmaids and I to get dressed, they set up a room in case it rained (even though there was no rain in sight), and they had all of the tables and chairs ready to use on sight with no extra charge! We really couldn't have asked for anything more perfect. The back deck, where we got married, is large and has a beautiful view, and I loved that everything was all on one level, so that the older members of our families felt like they could easily move around. Smithfield Center did a great job at keeping in touch with me in the months before the wedding, and they were always so willing to answer any questions that I had, no matter how silly they may have seemed. I really cannot express how perfect Smithfield Center made our wedding day; I highly recommend them for your special day.

We had our wedding at The Smithfield Center two weeks ago and could not have picked a better venue for our needs. From the beginning, Courtney was extremely responsive and helpful in answering questions about our event. As the event got closer, Courtney and Amy were more than accommodating and truly went above and beyond. We are so thankful for their efficiency, especially as plans for the ceremony changed the day of due to rain. The venue was the perfect size and fit for a wedding of 175 guests, but also felt extremely intimate. The set up was perfect upon our arrival and Calvin was a great day of help. We loved it and would recommend to anyone! The
